A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on ego, identification, possessions, work, social status, recognition, knowledge, education, appearance, ability, relationships, history, beliefs, and you

The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, personal and family history, belief systems, and often political, nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. None of these is you.

Eckhart Tolle

A Quote by Henry Brooks Adams on teacher, student, education, energy, training, effort, tools, and models

At the utmost, the active-minded young man should ask of his teacher only mastery of his tools. The young man himself, the subject of education, is a certain form of energy; the object to be gained is economy of his force; the training is partly the clearing away of obstacles, partly the direct application of effort. Once acquired, the tools and models may be thrown away.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on education, exchange, value, shared knowledge, teacher, student, and growth

A teacher who establishes rapport with the taught, becomes one with them, learns more from them than he teaches them. He who learns nothing from his disciples is, in my opinion, worthless. Whenever I talk with someone I learn from him. I take from him more than I give him. In this way, a true teacher regards himself as a student of his students. If you will teach your pupils with this attitude, you will benefit much from them.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on poverty, education, college, and class

When it is difficult for millions to make even the two ends meet, when millions are dying of starvation, it is monstrous to think of giving our relatives a costly education. Expansion of the mind will come from hard experience, not necessarily in the college or in the schoolroom....  The golden rule to apply in all such cases is resolutely to refuse to have what millions cannot. THis ability to refuse will not descend upon us all of a sudden. The first thing is to cultivate the mental attitude that we will not have possessions or facilities denied to millions, and the next immediate thing is to rearrange our lives as fast as possible in accordance with our mentality.

A Quote by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche on dancing and education

Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet,
with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with the pen?

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844 - 1900)
